From the ISDS website

The top 15 handlers from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are competing for the 15 places in Sunday's Supreme Championship. In addition, there is a Brace competition and four Young Handlers will be competing on the final day during the lunchtime break. Report from Andrew Hall with information from Suzy Woolston and Austin Bennett.

Supreme Championship Result
The Supreme Championship is decided on Merit Points. For each of the four judges, the handler coming first gets 15 points, and so on down to the handler in last place who gets one point. Thus if all the judges place the same person first, that handler will have 60 Merit Points.

15th: Allistair Lyttle SPOT Dis
